 Detailed instructions to train yourself properly and to achieve an optimal outcome from the program.
Why Do Some Players Play BETTER than Others?
Really, why? A lot of people play and study chess. However, only 13% of players have really good achievements (titles, prizes…). What is different about this successful minority from the rest?
It is NOT a matter of talent. I have observed thousands of different players, and I can state it with confidence. Yes, you need to have chess talent for the highest chess achievements (over 26002700 rating). However, anyone can become a titled player and get 200300 rating points.
It depends on your TRAINING.
At the same time, I know a lot of players who study chess 8 hours a day (more than many GMs) but don’t have any real progress. Thus, the major factor here is not how much you train, but HOW you train.
Here we come to one of my favorite topics – an effective training.
Education in chess goes on in a most haphazard fashion. – E.Lasker
Lack of Chess School.
Education in chess goes on in a most haphazard fashion. – E.Lasker
There is no system of education in chess. There was a system in former USSR (and it gave great results), but that has long passed.
Chess players study chess randomly. Nobody has a training program. Nobody really knows what and how to study. Most chess teachers are just a bit more experienced players. They also do NOT know what you really need and how to help you.
A chess player (or a chess teacher) is a job; and the same applies to all other professions, it requires a special system of preparation. For some strange reason many chess players don’t understand this. They think that it is enough to buy some chess books, to read them, to have some practice, and “voila” – you are a strong chess player.
What if doctors (let’s say surgeons) start using the same method of learning? Luckily, they don’t do it. Otherwise, they would sometimes cut off something by mistake.
What is the Solution?
In order to progress in chess, you need to not just train, but to train the RIGHT things. You need to have a training program (training plan), which will give you a comprehensive system of chess knowledge. You need to acquire the necessary skills at the right time.
Also you need to use EFFECTIVE training methods, which REALLY give you improvement.
It is my intention to help you with for this purpose; I have developed a special course “Selftaught Grandmaster”.
If you want to progress in chess, BUT you:
 Live in a small city
 Don’t have a chess coach
 Don’t have a lot of time for training
 Don’t have an opportunity to play in strong tournaments regularly
 Want to get MORE benefit out of your training
Then my course is exactly for you!
What is the point of “Selftaught Grandmaster”? I have combined the successful experience of:
 Former USSR chess Schools
 My own playing and teaching experience
 Psychological knowledge about human brain functioning (and effective learning)
 Thousands of my pupils.
Now you can get the most effective training methods, which have proved its high efficiency.
This course includes:
Learn Anywhere, Anytime and on Any Device
The courses can be accessed on ANY device (even nonWindows devices).
Video lessons, chess games, exercises, documents, all are there for you.
You can study RCA courses online or download them.

Like your lessons, I bought self taught grandmaster some years back. I really enjoyed it and learn a lot in it. I have also gone thru some of your wk through a Friend, very educative.
